Ontario is failing to effectively protect some of the critical habitat for boreal caribou, Environment Minister Steven Guilbeault has warned in a letter to the province obtained by The Canadian Press.

Ontario Environment Minister David Piccini is announcing Wednesday that the province will spend $29 million over four years to support boreal caribou habitat restoration, protection and other conservation activities, calling it the largest single investment dedicated to caribou in Ontario’s history.
